Technology Integration

EPIC!

Epic has thousands of eBooks for your class and is FREE for educators! Just create an account, add your students, and start reading! You can create up to 36 student accounts for your class and have your students personalize their reading preferences! With your teacher account, you can view a report that shows how many books your students have read, what books they've read, and how many hours your students have spent reading! Click here for more information and to create an educator account!

K-1 grade teachers, this would be a great app to add to your student iPads! Your students can even elect to listen to books read aloud to them! All other grade levels, consider adding this app to your teacher iPad or for read-to-self with BYOT!
